limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight.

, it all boils down to there's a very different vision when you're talking about a government that takes about 23%, 24% of gdp and one at 20%, 21% like budget chairman ryan proposed. as we began this debate, they can't even agree on where we start because democrats believe we've already cut $1.7 trillion to $3 trillion all from domestic and defense, nondefense discretionary spending which, of course, that's not true. >> wait a minute. >> $3 trillion in discretionary -- >> no, $1.5 trillion is how the cbo. >> republicans will give you $900 billion and cbo -- you canted even agree where you're starting. >> that is a problem. >> true. but if -- what does it tell you that the ryan budget had essentially no medicare savings in the first ten years? in other words, you have a contest to cut entitlements, and the republicans say to the president, put some cuts on the table. democrats say the reverse, but we haven't seen them from anybody. >> she needs no introduction. that, of course, the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. she has changed her hairstyle. there will be a twitter poll

and that would cost the go government more. >> that's not what i'm asking. low interest rates enabled the debt to accrue to the level it has. doesn't he have a moral responsibility to tell them ways to address it? >> absolutely. >> i mean, i don't think there's any question about that, exactly what you're saying. every time he talks, you almost feel as though what he's saying he wants to say more than what he is saying. what he needs to say is everything is in terrible shape. everything looks horrible and you better get your act straight because this country is going down the tube. >> he has said repeatedly when we go over the fiscal cliff, if we go over the fiscal cliff, we don't have any more tools. he says it a lot. >> it's even been stronger than that, maria. he has very much said what the beige book is saying right now which is that it's having a current effect. it's not in the future. >> agreed. >> i've got to say this. when we talk about interest rates, you know, staying low, objection remember, the government only can effectuate or affect the discount rate and the fed funds rate. most
, in march, government spending does run out. they would focus on a longer-term debt ceiling increase sometime in april or may. that is the strategy from house republicans. president obama says he has not even entertained any type of negotiations. republicans should agree to raise the debt ceiling because having to raise it is the result of appropriations already passed and signed into law. back to you. melissa: thanks so much. ashley: here with reaction to the gop when it peter welch. thank you for joining us. you say, look, republicans are making it an "economic weapon of mass distraction." do they get is a continuation of that? >> it is actually progress for the republican confidence, but it is not progress for the country. that tack tick is not one that they can hold onto because they know it will plunge this country into a deeper recession. they have been -- it is a way to say they are avoiding. ashley: it really is not addressing the issue, though, what will it take to get that in place. i know that you, of course, have been leading the charge to have the president to prevent th
? >> that is things we cannot talk about what the government will not talk about. obviously a special mission is being prepared that would emerge if they're executed, but let's be clear, the lead is the algerians. they are on the ground surrounding the flight. some hostages have been killed, others have been freed, but very delicate and difficult situation. the fact that we have a drone next to the algerians and sharing of intelligence is most of what we can do at this point in time. although possible negotiations with third parties in the middle east including islamist government. we are using everything we can to free the american hostages. melissa: what is the relationship like right now? >> it has been very good in the past several years. but we're also having problems among each other. but on the larger scale, algeria fights al qaeda with us. melissa: how do you see this playing out from here, how do you see it and? speak ospeaker this situation wd with a military operation because al qaeda is determined not to negotiate, and the hope is al qaeda will be destroyed and all the house this will be r
's representativive government. today is special because it's sunday. tomorrow is the ceremonial swearing in on the mall. >> in this day and age, inaugurations have their own set of challenges. we will go over over the logistics and the schedule and the security. >> the formal swearing in is today. today is january 20, the constitutionally mandated day the president must be sworn in. that takes place in about an hour at the white house. we will get a preview from ed henry. >> good morning. interesting, the crowd's a lot smaller than they were four years ago. but still, as you noted, a lot of pomp and circumstance. it started when the president went to arlington national cemetery, met up with vice-president biden. there was a laying of a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns. the vice-president had been sworn in already this morning, a little bit earlier than the president. that's in part because he was sworn in by justice sotomayor who has a book signing this afternoon in new york city. they wanted to get that done at the vice-president's residence this morning. less than an hour from now, i
the ceiling and the government is using accounting tricks to pay the bills and top republican leaderships say they may vote in favor of a three month extension without requirements to cut government spending that. is according to eric cantor who said the vote could happen next week. it would mark a hudge about face for congressional republicans who said our government is addicted to spending . we turn to our new polling and show you most americans believe we have a spending problem. a whopping 83 percent said that government spending is out of control. compared to 62 percent in 2009 . majority of you scene percent favor raising the debt ceiling but the increase must be tied to major spending cuts. only 23 percent think it should be raised with no strings attached. that is what the republicans are considering. stay withs numbers just a moment now. we want to show you president obama will begin the second term with much less support than he had four years ago. the president's approval rating is 47 percent . 47 percent disapproving. compared to this time four years ago when his approval rating w
a decision because he is told that government will take over 60% of its income. is that fair for any californian to be faced with a decision like that? melissa: he also flirted with the idea of being part of a group that would bite into the padres. he is a hometown hero. somebody who means a lot to southern california. are you worried about your state in light of things like prosperity? >> we continue to see people leaving the state of california and there are better ways to raise revenue. one is by broadening our tax base by encouraging businesses to come to the state of california and expand here. that will solve our problems of increasing revenue. melissa: you talk about that the way you would encourage businesses to come would be to lower their tax rate. so, you know, it is quite the opposite of raising it. do you think you could ever get that done in california's current climate? >> not in our current climate we are not going to get it done. we need to cut government regulations. we need to give businesses incentives to be here. that in turn would bring revenue. melissa: you kno
enough for their retirement. they are increasingly reliability on government funding so that is a long-term problem. in fact, that's one of the reasons that we haven't been able to see a robust recovery is we don't have that catalyst for growth, ie the consumer taking on new amounts of debt and spurring new consumption because we're still de-leveraging from the decades of debt accumulation we've gone through. clearly this is a long-term probable. if we're focusing on just 401(k)s i don't see this as a net negative, people being able to access their own funds and use them as they see appropriate. >> i definitely don't recommend it. >> steve, while i have you here, i understand you have more detail on secretary geithner's letter to speaker boehner. >> right. >> what can you tell us. >> on the one hand it's completely expected. there are four extraordinary measures that the treasury secretary is allowed to invoke as we near the debt ceiling. what he did in this letter that just came out is he invoked the third one. i believe all four of these measures are built into the existing timetable
the federal government right now. would you sign on to that? >> i don't agree with those numbers. we have a whole tax code that helps states like new york that have higher taxes because they can take it off of their federal income taxes. that has to be part of that, as well. i think we need to help those in need is something we should be doing but if you are not going to spend 80% of the dollars for two years what's the rush? why hurry? get to the direct needs now and that's what i think is important and that's why i offered a transparency amendment that says let's see where the money is going. fema needs reform. we should be reformed it the last two years, a decade ago, after katrina problems and hopefully we can make progress when we do that. >> thank you very much. we appreciate your time. >>> still to come, france has sent more troops in to mali to fight the war there and the united states promises to help. what is help going to mean for american troops? >>> plus an "outfront" investigation, birth tourism. paying women big money to come to the united states and give birth to new ameri
they have to wait while the government checks out who they are, whether there's a court-ordered mental situation or emotional problem or a criminal record or whatever. what stops them from getting that gun mailed to them ten days or whatever later? >> well, right now they get turned away at the point of sale and are not prosecuted. that's a problem the president ought to deal with. that's the problem the president and we have been talking about for a long time. nothing stops that person from going online, pressing a mouse three times and getting a gun from an unlicensed private seller. >> you can go on ebay and get a gun. >> not on ebay. they do a good job not selling guns. arms jb list and craigslist. >> if somebody says bushmaster 100 bucks used. >> or best offer. here's my phone number and e-mail address. throw me your best offer and let's move somewhere. guns, cash, that's it. >> are either of you educated on what the assault rifle is? >> the president is going to follow the lead of people on the hill. diane feinstein. >> didn't the bushmaster not get defined last time? >> the law
health care is, it's very government-controlled and it's becoming more government-controlled so it's the opposite of free enterprise capitalism. >> all that and more in just minutes away, first, manti mania. notre dame football star manti te'o in the center of a big hoax, at the the victim or in on the hoax. and a teammate calling him a liar. >> and joining us with the latest facts on this story and jack, before we get to your conversations with teammates of him, i'm curious, set the stage. what are the facts as we know it tonight? >> well, the facts are so convoluted. it's such a long, deep rabbit hole where the story comes from. the quick version is that here you have manti te'o, star linebacker, notre dame, goes on to come in second place in heisman trophy ballots. he had this girlfriend he allegedly met a few years ago, she allegedly was diagnosed with leukemia and he kind of rode this wave of this tragic love story that happened to coincide on the same day as his grandmother's died, this fictitious girlfriend passed away and he was crying on the side line of the michigan win m
minister. the two countries, two governments working together to try to work out what they can do to bring had an end to this hostage situation. state department officials would not confirm any numbers, any names, any details about this. they say they want to keep everything under wraps so they can work the channels as best they know how. this, of course, a very concerning situation with these islamic militants taking the hostages. among them some americans, just put the map back up again. we're going to talk about mali in the south. look to the east. it is possibly no coincidence that this gas field is right on the border with libya. the rise of islamic extremism right across north africa is a major concern right now for u.s. officials. >> as you look at that map, you can see mali is well to the south. all of this is related to the fight against islamists in the neighboring country. >> reporter: remember the french launched an air campaign on friday. aircraft, jet fighters, helicopters also going in. they have now made this a ground campaign. remember, we heard from leon panetta just a co
cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
with the economy, social issues and government spending. she'll have four more years in her high profile position as first lady and agenda, all while making a fashion statement doing it. it sounds so shallow, doesn't it? pulitzer prize winning journalist robyn jiovan, good morning. thank you for being here. >> good morning. >> it always sounds so silly when you talk about the first lady's fashion but there is meaning behind it. please expound on that. >> yes, you know, i think it's one of the things that frustrates people within the fashion industry and probably a good deal of people who cover it. there seems t be this idea that these dresses, these suits that people wear and that they buy somehow just sort of drop out of the sky, that they're made by elves or something. we're talking about a $350 billion industry, an industry made up of a tremendous number of small businesses who, that employ actual live people. so to have a conversation about the impact of a first lady really underscoring the american fashion industry is really a conversation about a first lady who is celebrating american busin
. >> and the legislature do this? >> we do not get turned into people that are absolutely afraid of what the government can do to us. >> we are going down a slippery slope that can be very dangerous. >> we are going to miss an opportunity of the source of this anger and violence. stuart: baby i went overboard. i have been saying all morning i think that is the most important shift. what do you think? >> i think that is true. >> even when the police chief was colin ferguson, i have to be honest, a guy like that, they taken off the street and then they put him right back out. stuart: he would not be allowed to buy a gun. >> most of these guys are not allowed to buy a gun anyway. thank you very much. stuart: dagen and final, it is yours. connell: the new plan for gun control. we will take you there live. dagen: jamie dimon, his take is cut in half. the man still made millions last year. connell: japan's two largest airlines ground the dream liner after yet another incident. dagen: stocks now and every 15 minutes. nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole: let's take a look at jpmor
a strong defense of government saying that, quote, preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. take a listen. >> the american people can no more meet the demands of today's world by acting alone than the american soldiers could have met the forces of fascism and communism with militias. or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. now, more than ever we must do these things together as one nation and one people. peter: the president also did however discuss revamping the tax code, reducing healthcare spending, trying to reduce deficits, but acknowledging the realities of divided government, said, quote, today's victories will only be partial. cheryl? cheryl: peter barnes of course standing by at the white house, big day in d.c., cold day as well. peter thank you. well, while most of the markets are closed today, money is still moving. now is your chance to make money on currencies. joining me now for a fox business exclusive interview is senior currency strategist. welcome. currency markets
